Crazy Ivan

If you have seen the movie The Hunt for Red October or read any thriller novels involving Soviet subs, you know the term “crazy Ivan” refers to their method of turning the sub so as to check the blind spot in their baffles for an American sub trailing them.

I think I may have found a new use for that term.

I don’t know about you but if I came across a wild boar in the woods asleep, I don’t think I would grab him by the ear. Their tusks are sharp and can cut like nobody’s business. However, this Russian thought it was a good idea to do just that.

There is no word whether vodka was involved in this caper but I wouldn’t doubt it.
